Second Wind



early spring fervor
welcomes the winter weary
bearing gravity chilled bones,

nuance crosses the heart of hope
and bends the sword of fear
to release seeds of bittersweet

into the dawning air while
prickly thorns of a rose
struggle to defeat its scent

and in turmoil of change
man renews his faith
gains his second wind

"...release seeds of bittersweet." that's a great line. I liked the simplicity of this, but the power, too.

That speaks volumes to me! "welcomes the winter weary" Yes I gain my second wind as spring bears her head.

When winter comes early, it makes me believe that maybe spring will come early too! A lovely poem, thanks for sharing it with us. :-)

LOVE that! Really reminds you that out of the bad often comes the good.

nicely done, i especially like "nuance crosses the heart of hope."

Looks like you're keeping hope alive.
